The Atlantic?  Isn't that the rag that mega-conservative Andrew Sullivan writes for?  That article is really reaching or just a reach-around.

Let's blame Christianity for the housing bubble?  I'd expect that out of FOTD, but not you.



HEY! This demon DOES NOT blame the housing bubble on Christianity. It was the devil and his Armey.

Face it, Oral Roberts initiated the ability for our government to send missionaries worldwide vis a vie satellites.
C Street would not exist without his likes.

I DO generalize every now and then when I get on one of my spittle-flying rampages...

Bette Davis once said "never say anything bad about the dead". Well, Oral's dead, and that's good!

Why anyone could mourn a TV fakir is beyond me.  Surely there is a special place in hell for a charlatan like Oral Roberts who took every dime my grandmother had left.

Tulsa once had ethics, now it has none, and I think the evangelistic right wing-nuts are to blame, and Oral was certainly a right wing-nut. I'll pray for him, though, that he doesn't burn too long, just long enough to think over what he did to the many pennilesss old people he ripped off, and the many people who thought they were "healed" until they got home.

Thank God he's dead....believe me, I won't watch the TV coverage of his funeral.  Why can't his followers raise him from the dead?   Not enough faith I guess......
